Abstract

This paper is concerned with the classification and de-noising problem for non-linear signals. It is known that using kernel functions, a non-linear signal can be transformed into a linear signal in a higher dimensional space. In that feature space, a linear algorithm can be applied to a non-linear problem. It is proposed that using the principal components extracted from the feature space, the signal can be classified correctly in its input space. Additionally, it is shown how this classification process' can be used to de-noise DQPSK communication signals
